Its leaves are rolled like small green pearls and the aroma of the dry leaves has an almost buttery note, also present in the beautiful clear light green liquor. Harvested on the 24th of april 2014, limited stock. Brew 2g in a gaiwan (a Chinese teacup with a lid), at 80°C.
Tea and health
Recent books and studies seem to prove that green tea plays an essential role, not only in preventing, but also in treating cardiovascular diseases and some types of cancer. In his books, David Servan-Schreiber has stressed the presence in green tea of a catechin, the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This powerful antioxidant is capable of neutralizing the reactive oxygen species and the free radicals heavily involved in aging and in chronic degenerative diseases. Researches have shown that the EGCG may have beneficial effects against numerous illnesses, like atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases or overweight. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is recommended for intellectual work, to reduce fatigue by stimulating the nervous system, to lower body temperature, enhance eyesight, reinforce the immune system, help digestion... It is important to underline that the green tea that is evoked here is of good quality and, of course, straight, plain green tea!
